On Sunday, Florida Marlins outfielder Chris Coghlan pied teammate Wes Helms during a TV interview. Helms scored the game-ending single against the Atlanta Braves and was congratulated with a new team tradition. It is now being reported that Coghlan tore his meniscus during the post-celebration pie throw and will be sent to the DL. Coghlan received an MRI on Monday and discovered he might need surgery.
When asked about the incident, Marlins manager Edwin Rodriguez said there will be “no more such celebratory antics.”
Coghlan was last year’s NL Rookie of the year. If surgery is required, Coghlan would miss 6-8 weeks.
A fan in a LeBron Miami Heat jersey was escorted out of the Cleveland Indians game last night. The Indians played the New York Yankees, and Alex Rodriquez attempted to get his 600th home run. However, A-Rod was over shadowed by the LeBron fan who at in the left-field bleachers as fans chanted obscenities at him.
The fan was later escorted out for his safety and A-Rod failed to reach 600.
On Monday night, Tampa Bay Ray Matt Garza pitched a no-hitter in the Ray’s 5-0 win over the Detroit Tigers. Garza’s no-hitter is the first one in franchise history, but not the first no-hitter this season. The year of the pitcher, Garza becomes the fifth player to pitch a no-hitter in 2010, well on track to beating the record of seven no-hitters in season back in 1990 and 1991.
While baseball fans have seen plenty of no-hitters and one kinda perfect game, Tigers manager Jim Leyland also gave fans a no-spitter. Leyland is in the midst of a spitting controversy. Umpire Marty Foster is claiming Leyland spit on him during an altercation in the third inning of Garza’s no-hitter. Leyland was tossed from the game after arguing with Foster over Ray’s B.J Upton’s stolen base.
Foster ejected Leyland claiming the manager spit on him, but Lelaynd says he’s innocent. “Did I spray him? Yes. Did I mean to? No. I was talking right close [to him] and what happens a lot of times, happened. I asked him if he was going to write me up. He said, ‘You spit on me.’ I said, ‘You mean to tell me that you’re going to write up that I deliberately spit on you?’ He said, ‘Yes.’ I said, ‘Well that’s a blatant lie.’
The MLB is investigating the incident and will decide if further disciplinary action will be taken.
The Hills were alive at Dodger’s Stadium when reality-TV star Kristin Cavallari threw out the first pitch at their game before the Giants on Tuesday.
Like Kristin’s career, the Dodger’s are plummeting in the NL West, 6 games back from the San Diego Padres. I thought Kristin was suppose to be in London anyway?
